    Lt. Michael Patrick Murphy, commander of Navy SEAL Team 10, posthumously received the Congressional Medal of Honor for his heroic actions on 28 June 2005 during a fierce battle with Taliban fighters in the remote mountains of eastern Afghanistan. Michael was the first recipient of the nation’s highest military honor as a result of U.S. involvement in Afghanistan. He was also the first naval officer to earn the medal since the Vietnam War, and the first SEAL to be honored posthumously.

    Story
    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    LT. Murphy's story is a GREAT one. The Author seemed to be just trying to fill pages up, with much of the book. The Author would explain in great (boring) detail about every little thing in the story i.e. writing down every thing on EVERY packing list, read every single word on every single award.


    Any additional comments?

    Book may be good for someone that is extremely clueless on military. Sorry, that Lt. Murphy's story was let down in such a way. Lone Survivor does and extremely GREAT job on showing what a Great person Michael Murphy was and what he did!

    As A SEAL and combat medic, Mark served his country with valorous distinction for almost 25 years and survived some of the most dangerous combat actions imaginable. From the rigors of BUD/S training to the horrors of the battlefield, Battle Ready dramatically immerses the listener in the unique life of the elite warrior-medic who advances into combat with life-saving equipment in one hand and life-taking weapons in the other. It is also an uplifting human story that reveals how a young Hispanic American bootstrapped himself out of a life that promised a dead-end future by enlisting in the military.

    jones says: "Captivating, honest, humbling. Just a grade A job"

    Where does Battle Ready rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of top 5 books I have read. Lone Survivor and Fearless beat this book out but not by much.


    What did you like best about this story?

    He breaks down PTSD down for people who have no idea how combat effects individuals, who have seen combat. He breaks down how what happens to your buddies effects you, much more than what you do to the enemy.
